Gracie's List

Top Ten Things To Do When You're 
Not Allowed To Do Anything.

1.  Lay around and act sick.

2.  Act like eating is a chore...  (this will get you even more food and anything your heart desires)

3.  Think of ways to get out of taking your pills.

4.  Run and hide when you hear the pill bottle being opened.

5.  Eat the hamburger, but spit out the pill.

6.  Eat the cookie icing, but spit out the pill.

7.  Wait till Nurse Ratched is not looking, then spit the pill out.

8.  Practice keeping the pill from  getting caught in your fur after you spit.   For some reason, that's the first place Nurse Ratched looks.

9.  When you hear Nurse Ratched say "If Miss Gracie Phillip doesn't want to take her medications orally I'm sure we can arrange that she can have it some other way,"  Swallow hard!

10.  Do some magic tricks and change the focus from "Give the dog her meds"  to "Wow!  Will you look at this!  Look what Gracie did!" 


  1. Hi Gracie
    Thank you for sharing all these tips with us. Now I know exactly what to do- thanks to you.

  2. BOL funny. We do that with the pills. In the end peanut butter and jam worked. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Oh Gracie....Me's da expert when it comes to pill spittin! And to really get on Mom's last nerve, some buddy picks up me pill and pops it open.....all over da carpet! Voila! Orange carpet stains!


  4. Oh Gracie, take you meds! Your Mom loves you and just wants you to get better! Just a little advice from Ganky:) HUGS!

  5. Was Jack talking to you, Gracie?

  6. Hi Gracie! Its been a really wild and crazy week for me, but it didn't stop me from sending healthy healing thoughts for you--I hope you're feeling better and taking those meds will get as easy as taking a treat--Who wants those bladder stones again??

    Take care!!!

  7. Samson Says: Hi my sweet Gracie. I can tell you are feeling better because your attitude is back. I get so little food around here (they should be reported)because of my tummy. Mommy reminds me I get food three times a day now and that's why it's less. Am I supposed to believe that? Humans....

    Anyways, I was going to say, that's why I eat my pills, she puts them in a piece of bread, thinking I don't know, but I do. I'm just so hungry I swallow them quick with the bread. Sending many EAR KISSES to you my sweet Gracie, XOXOXOXO, your Samson

  8. Gracie, Mommy loves you and wants you to get well quick. Be a good girl, and take the pills. Harriet and I send our love.

    Thank you, Bobbi, for your prayers and kindness.
